Abstract

Oil exploitation can lead to contamination of environments, which can have effects on human health. Health symptoms associated with living or working in an area affected by oil contamination are often unclear and debated. In this project, we created a website housing scientific research on the health effects of oil contamination. Five spill sites were examined in detail: Deepwater Horizon, Ecuador, Exxon-Valdez, Kuwait, and Nigeria.
